Here are some things you should always check before you buy a used vehicle:
Look for any wear or scratches around the vehicle’s dashboard. This could be a sign that the odometer has been tampered with.
- View the vehicle from all angles—including from the ground—to check for wear and tear.
- Check for a damp or moldy smell in the vehicle’s interior. This could be a sign of water damage.
- Take the vehicle on a test drive to see how well it performs. Also, pay attention to any clanking or grinding noises that could indicate damage.
- Ask a salesperson to see under the vehicle’s front hood. Additionally, you should ask if the vehicle has a printed history report, so you can see if it’s been in any accidents or had serious maintenance done.
